Grills! They may no longer be at the top of hip-hop’s trends list anymore, but still, no trip to Houston is complete without getting a new one. Meek Mill, currently on Drake’s “Club Paradise” tour, got a couple new pieces last night as a treat from local rapper Trae The Truth.
MTV’s Sway Calloway was there to capture the magic moment. “Just got my move made. Trae Tha Truth treated me to a grill – a gold one,” the Maybach Music Group rapper said during a lighthearted backstage interview. “End up gettin’ a rose gold one, too.”
Paul Wall, the master of grills, fitted and advised Meek on his purchase. When pressed, he said that he would make sure Sway got his own grill in a style that had never been rocked before. “When we be in Houston, too, we really be in Houston,” Meek said pointing around the room at the local rap royalty. “We really f— with the grills. Somebody might really be on the lean. Trae Tha Truth is in the building. Paul Wall!”
